WoodGreen Community Services
Grants to Toronto nonprofits, community organizations, and religious groups for projects that support vulnerable elderly citizens from ethnic backgrounds. Funding is intended for projects that will help seniors manage chronic health conditions and reduce avoidable visits to emergency services. Projects should also provide culturally and linguistically accessible services to seniors to improve their health and their access to health care services.
Organizations demonstrate these outcomes by empowering seniors with access to health information to prevent and self-manage chronic diseases, and by reducing avoidable visits to emergency services through enhanced community-supports.
However, the funds do much more than that – they help organizations serving ethno-racial seniors to continue building healthier communities through health promotion, training, counseling, and by supporting and raising awareness of existing health and community supports within communities.
WoodGreen will work intensively with organizations through training to ensure successful project implementation, evaluation outcomes, and as a partner to build organizations’ capacities to serve seniors in their communities. An Advisory Committee will also be established in order to collectively work towards the development of a coherent Ethno-Racial Seniors Health Promotion Strategy.
